on the fence, and, funny thing is, the polling has been varied, but romn has been strong overall, but obama strong in the states that count. that's where there is thero possibility there could be one winner of the most votes while the other gets the electrical. >> what are the battleground states? >> romney has about 191 locked up, he has to win florida, north carolina, virginia, he has to ton 0 ohio with 18, or find a substitute, maybe pennsylvania, if that's a reach, and add colorado, or something like iowa and new hampshire. >> virginia. >> i n't know why nor carolina is on -- north carolina is on that list. >> he already has it. >> new >> new hampshire, virgin, florida, ohio, wisconsin, colorado, nevada, and owif you t that through the grinder, you come out with one state, ohio. is that true? but you have nevada which is leaning towards obama and wisconsin is still leaning towards obama. ohio, is my view, is in dispense able. >> where did you read that nevada is leaning towards obama. >> i haven't seen a pollare romney leading first. it's one-third hispic, and this heavily unionized. >>
much smaller gains. mr. obama has consist enly lead in the polls here and still holds an average of a 2 to 3 point lead. with the resurgence of the auto industry, new stealle production and the promise of large natural gas reserves, you can sense the optimism here in northeast ohio. but a big question w is whether demoatic strongholds like youngstown will give mr. obama enough margin to carryde the state and stay in the white house. mr. obama's popularity here is maintained by strong support frome autoworkers like union president green. >> in march everything almost came to a halt, right. the contractors we had in the plant were backing off. there were helicopters flying over our plant taking inventory, people waing through our plint with clipboards taking inventory. they were going tot liquidate our facility. that's a fact.ou so mitt romney can air brush this all i wants. that's what was happening at the time. the fact that president obama stood up and said i'm going take a bet on the american workers and we're going to invest in this when it wasn't a popular thing to do, absolutely h
and the questions being posed to mitt romney about fema funding. >> belva: president obama get a bump and rating out of his handling -- >> in the last week, wve seen a sea change in the presidentil race, obama not only got a bump in the polls, no doubt about it, but the fact he got the support of michael bloomberg and chris christie -- >> chris christie hasn't endorsed him. >> the fact is, he said he endorsed his role -- >> his leadership. >> his leadership, and i think that was very critical. it did raise the whole issue of, what is the role of government? and i think a lot of people stood back and watched some of the destruction there, i think the affects of sandy are going to be talked about for a long time on this presidential race, coming where they did when romney has had some momentum going into it. we'll see if he does coming out of it. >> >> belva: i have to return to odette here. we talked about polls. where are issues that these groupsof any of the grouches -- . >> looking beyond the numbers, they were able to glean direct insight from journalists in a weekly election series that we did
can grow. >> reporter: with polls in iowa showing president obama with a thin but steady lead, it's likely that both candidates will try to tap into the growing number of latino voters. >> brown: online, you can watch a video profile of the town of perry, iowa, on our politics page. >> woodruff: and to the analysis of shields and brooks. that's syndicated columnist mark shields and "new york times" columnist david brooks. so one of the things he said was to to him immigration reform is the second big, and yet it barely comes up. he is not ady for obvious rrntion it is a tough issue and mitt romney is not for obvious reason sois think if obama is re-elected i'm not sure, it is to the going to be a top priority. >> re-elected? >> re-elected, just gave me a cold chill. >> maybe in the second term it will be. if obama is re-elected he will be. and i suspect they would be happy to go back to george w. bush was trying to do a few years ago. but it is a tragedy we haven't really talked about because it is much harder to get something passed. >> how do you see it. >> i think the republica
from fossil fuel interests that'sne reon heon even opposes a clean energy tax credit for wind. obama, i think, is just misreading the polls entirely. the latest pollingt shows that - i think ken is right. when global warming becomes local that the public comes concerned about it. that's why the polls in the last two years have shown the public increasingly concerned and this is particularly true of independent voters also. they are i very concernry about their local pollution but also the extreme weather that they've been seeing. who could miss $14 billion extreme weather disasters in this country last year and over $7 this year. everyone sees the weather is going crazy and it's affecting them. it's not going to be affecting distant people in a distant land a distant time from now. it's happening here and now. >> suarez: joseph romm, kenneth green, gentlemen, thank you both. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> suarez: we've rounded up all of our reporting on these issues on our "coping with climate change" pagen our web site. take a look.n >> ifill: and we turn to the final days of the presi
you do when yti're four days out from election day, judy. but looking at the maps and the polling it's clear that president obama still has a narrow advantage in terms of how you get to 270 el ftoral votes. two big developments to me have happened in the last 48 hours. the first one is the kino of ads governor romney is running. you mentioned one of them in your piece, that's the one in florida linking president obama to chave and castro. the other one in ohio where governor romney for the first time brings up the auto issue where he's been battered on. neither of those ads were released to the press, they were just put on the air. that, as you know, is a giveaway that they don't want that ad to be written about, they want voters to see it. and that to me says they still have to move numbers in both florida and ohio and the second big thing, judy, the fact that governor romney on sunday is going to be in the philadelphia suburbs, that really speaks to the fact that they're looking for a way to 270 besides ohio. >> woodruff: margaret, you cover the white house, you're talking to them.
